Really pretty clear pale yellow in the glass. Fairly floral nose. Crisp but fruity on initial taste--some citrus, some stone fruit, some tropical fruit. Nice acid tartness provides the crispness. An easy drinker. US$9.35 at Total WIne
This is the 2010 vintage. Burgans was my first Albarino and still a go to bottle. A bit more saline than I remember, but still refreshing with classic grapefruit and honeysuckle. Would be awesome with a winter fish stew.
Light and crisp
Peach and melon aromas with some floral notes as well. White peach and spice - full of bright acidity and lots of delicious fruit. Very nice wine.
Nice change of pace from the normal varieties I usually find around the house. Even better while watching the virtual tasting and learning more about this region and this variety. To me, very similar to a Pinot Grigio but refreshingly different. Light and soft on the palate with a tropical fruit profile with a hidden spice that I couldn't quite place. For some reason I pulled a slight amount of anise out of it. Subtle but pleasant finish. Easy to drink and quite enjoyable. Will buy this bottle again.
This was my first Albarino, and still a go to bottle. This vintage has more of a saline quality, but still good balance of grapefruit and honeysuckle. Definitely a great seafood match and summer quencher.
Interesting wine but not fully to my taste. Notes at the wine bar said Popsicle on it and I definitely got that.
External Reviews for Burgans Albariño Rías Baixas Rias Baixas
A refreshing food friendly white wine, Albarino is crisp, elegant and dry and has aromas and flavors of pear, passion fruit and apple with bright acidity.
A custom cuvee made for Eric Solomon from this large producer, this 2011 Albarino reveals loads of tropical fruit, white peach, honeysuckle and apricot notes along with medium body and a fresh, lively style. The crisp acid and abundant fruit make this a hedonistic, crowd-pleasing, dry white to drink over the next 1–2 years.
Pale gold. Powerful scents of pineapple, mango and white flowers, with a chalky overtone. Supple and round in the mouth, offering juicy tropical fruit flavors and a bracing note of lemon zest. The floral note comes back on the long, broad finish.
A bright greenish yellow color with golden highlights. A uniquely fruity aroma where the variety is clearly appreciated, highlighting hints of ripe apples, apricots, and peach aromas. In the mouth, it is rich, mellow and well-balanced. The aftertaste is fully rounded and off dry on the palate with juicy fruit flavors, clean acidity and a long, mineral-dominated finish.

This wine is an aromatic and complex wine that is rich, elegant, dry and crisp. It is full-bodied, with flavors of ripe apples, peach, apricot, melon, grapefruit and lemon zest melded perfectly together with a bright minerality. The striking balance of acidity, body and aromas allows the wine to adapt to the palate exhibiting its versatility of fresh and bright characteristics to a rounder mouth-feel as the meal evolves.
Auge: Lebendiges Strohgelb mit grünlichen Reflexen; Nase: Intensive und elegante Aromen nach frischem Gras, grüne Äpfel, Zitrusfrüchte und Grapefruit; Gaumen: Starke Präsenz im Gaumen, rund und vollmundig. Eine leichte Kohlensäure gibt dem Wein eine eindrucksvolle Frische.
Burgans is made at the famous Bodega Martin Codax by Luciano Almoedo, perhaps the biggest advocate of the Albario varietal in Spain. Luciano was extremely influential in obtaining worldwide recognition for not only the varietal, but also Rias-Baixas. Today, the Bodega has grown considerably and is known as one of the most progressive in the zone. The use of wood is definitively eschewed at the Bodega in order to preserve the natural lift and minerality of the grapes. As such, the wines are fermented and aged in stainless steel with light lees stirring. The wine is blended by Eric Solomon, working in concert with the property, and is bottled in the spring after harvest.
